The change Donald Trump’s presidency has brought to these United States is to join one of the political parties with the terrorists trying to take over countries to exercise power and control by any violent, destructive, death producing means necessary. In that he is very much like Bin Laden except Bin Laden was physically a part of the war he raged, Donald Trump doesn’t have his hands in the pie because he might destroy his manicure. He does his dirty work through others.
Not surprisingly, out of Texas has come the latest step in this Global War against democracy. and half of our Supreme Court are implicated. Who would have thought terrorists would be appointed to such a formerly esteemed body. But then, wasn’t it Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’ wife who funded some of the buses for January 6th? And could she have done so without his involvement? And don’t we have the Rev. Danforth, Episcopal priest, to thank for Clarence Thomas being on the Supreme Court and Josh Hawley being in Congress? What does that say about what our current institutions produce and from where they see their benefits arising.
One of the strong tenets pushed by the GOP as it moves into the center of world terrorist groups is the anti-abortion movement. It raises the religious banners as do all of those so fighting. Nothing like claiming a god as your guide. But which god! The god who strengthens the greedy, the power hungry, the cold and heartless seekers after their own fortunes at the expense of others? Or the Jesus of the disinherited. Or the Buddha who was born a wealthy prince, but left it all when he saw the poverty and sickness beyond his palace. Or many more……..
The anti-abortion movement is simply about money, power and control. It is no different from what is going on with ISIS-K and all those groups which preceded. If you needed proof that the GOP is now a powerful terrorist organization alongside all those others, the anti-abortion laws out of Texas are stark in their reach, their methods, their oppression, their setting up the first legalized terror group in the United States sanctioned by the laws of their state.
There has to be those in society who are “less than” to create the “better than” mentality which is the food of the gods of terror, destruction, death by torture and so much more. Humans are very creative and when we use that creativity on the side of satan it is horrendous.
Some of us were outraged by this new anti-abortion law out of Texas, which did not allow abortions even for those who have been raped, are the victims of incest, etc. Why that should surprise anyone amazes us. A man’s power has always been in his claimed virility and what shows that best than many children scattered around the world who were created by one man’s sperm.
The worst is when organized religion gets involved and claims god is on the side of what they describe as “life” and is not with those they claim are the “killers’ of babies. That is quite a twisted theology and those who have studied theology know that, but aren’t able to come out with the claim because in that area, many are “better than” males who want to see the anti-abortion theology succeed, however spurious its claims may be.
If you are for “life” you are against abortion, murder, executions by the state, war, adding chemicals to food to increase how much you can grow and therefore sell, those forces which destroy the environment and cause long painful death to many, – the list goes on.
Those who claim to be against abortion because they are for “life” are generally also those climate change deniers; those on the front row to see the execution of many placed on death row; they fight to maintain the death sentence in the law; they could care less about making sure growers grow healthy food; …….
It has ever been so around the world and across the centuries. It has and is so in these United States, in Europe, in the Middle East, in South America where there are humans there is those dichotomy of those for and those against. Those for life are only pro-life in areas where they see themselves gaining power and control so life itself is not the issue. Those same people can turn on a dime and advocate and work for death – slow drawn out death or immediate murder doesn’t matter if they gain money, power and control.
The “space race” comes out of the same need. People are starving, homeless, destitute in great need and our current billionaires are satisfying the needs their penis dictates. Even the shape of the vehicles being used in this race to another planet are shaped like the male penis.
Oh, that’s not right, they say. We gave at the office. We gave one penny for every $1,000 we spend on space craft – or some equivalent. First solve the problems at home which your accumulation of wealth helped create and then go off into space with your new play toys. There is so much to be done and so few to do it. Especially with those trying to traverse the universe wrecking havoc with the world.
Will we ever turn away from evil towards the good? Will we ever question ourselves as to our real motives? Will we ever feel compassion, empathy, love? A few maybe, but the many are too busy polishing their images, building their worldly fortunes, living each day as though it is one of thousands more during which we can accumulate more and more. There should be not one billionaire in this world, on this earth. Look at the destruction they have wrought in the process of acquiring.
Maybe one day we will find God’s love . Hope that day comes before “the fire next time” arrives bringing the end to all – the good and the bad.
